Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Orla was great! Super easy to contact and the apartment was very clean. It's in an awesome location on the cable car line and other metro lines so you can go anywhere in the city and it's just a quick hop to places like the ferry building.

    Next time we are in town we will definitely try to stay here again.

  • I had a very good four-day stay in San Francisco. The location of this little apartment is excellent, near Polk Street and in walking distance from BART stations.

    April 2014
  • We had an absolutely lovely time this past weekend in Orla's beautiful flat in Nob Hill. SF is one of our all-time favorite cities and the fun of visiting it again after three years was enhanced by living in such a cozy, well-appointed apartment. We got very late arriving from Seattle and Scott (Orla's boyfriend) waited up for us at the apartment and let us in, which was rather nice of him. The studio is exactly as in the pics -- very neat and clean, with a full kitchen, free and fast wi-fi, and Orla's lovely list of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that they like. (Try some from this list -- you won't regret it!)

    Add to this the fact that Nob Hill is quite central for any number of beautiful SF walks - from the local explorations to the longer meandering we did (all the way via Pacific heights and the Presidio to Seacliff, for example) - and this place is pretty much unbeatable for the price. Also - look, you can stay in a hotel but don't you want to (at least for a few days) live and eat and travel like an SF local? You know you do, and that's another reason to live here!

    Last but not the least -- stay here also because of the hosts. Orla was very prompt in answering any questions we had and in helping out wtih parking garages in the neighborhood as well.

    The next time we visit SF as a couple -- Orla's the one I am going to check with first!

  • Orla's studio was cosy and light, and perfectly situated for visiting the city. Lots of restaurants, grocery- and coffeeshops in the immediate area. Orla herselve was very welcoming and reacted swiftly and effectively on questions. I can certainly recommend her.

  • L'appartment d'Orla est parfait pour découvrir San Francisco à 2. Il est exactement comme sur les photos, très lumineux et assez spacieux pour deux. Il est possible de se rendre à pied dans beaucoup d'endroits. Orla avait laissé des prospectus et un guide avec des recommandations. Elle a été disponible pour nos questions avant le voyage.
    Orla's apartment is perfect to discover San Francisco as a couple. It looks exactly as on the pictures, bright and with enoug space for 2. Many places are accessible from there on foot. Orla ha left brochures and a small guide with recommandations. She was available for our questions prior to the stay.

  • The apartment was nice and had great location. We didn't meet Orla, but she was very helpful and communicative. Everything went great! Thanks Orla!

    March 2014
  • Staying at Orla's place was really fantastic. It's located in a great neighborhood with plenty to explore nearby but also within walking distance to so much of the city. The apartment itself was nice and clean. We had a great time!

    March 2014
  • Orla's studio is pretty and comfortable. The location is very good to go everywhere. The area is very nice too. Groceries, pharmacies, and coffee shops are nearby.
    Orla was very communicative and she provided us accurate directions.
    She also left a nice list of bars and restaurants of the area.

  • Orla's sunny, clean apartment made a wonderful base for me and my son to play tourist in SF. We walked a few blocks up Hyde to catch the cablecar to Fisherman's Wharf and walked over to Chinatown, which is also very close. Then we took a short bus ride to 4th and King to catch Caltrain. A Trader Joe's and CVS are a half-block away, handy for a forgotten toothbrush and some snacks.

    I especially appreciated that Orla accommodated our schedule, which included flight delays ending in our arrival at midnight and a late checkout before our Caltrain departure.
